The NEBOSH National General Certificate course is one of the UK’s most popular health and safety qualifications. Offering a valuable overview of the core aspects of occupational health and safety, the course provides an excellent platform for individuals who are looking to build upon their knowledge and skills and take their career forward.
Designed for managers, supervisors and employees who have health and safety responsibilities, the certificate will equip you with all you need to know about how to manage workplace risks effectively.
Alternatively, if E-Learning isn’t suitable, this course is also available as a classroom course. Please call us on 0345 500 8811 to discuss further.
Unit NG1: Management of Health and Safety
Unit NG2: Risk Assessment
The updated course now consists of two assessments:
What is an Open Book Exam?
An open book exam assesses the same learning outcomes as an invigilated, paper-based exam. However, in an open book exam, you can use textbooks, course notes and the internet.
You can complete the assessment in your own home, or another suitable location. You will have up to 24 hours to complete the NEBOSH open book exam, but we find that most candidates only take 4-5 hours.
The open book exam will test your analytical and critical skills, focussing on the knowledge gained during the NEBOSH course.
What is a closing interview?
After completing the open book exam, you will be asked to participate in a 15-minute closing interview. The purpose of the interview is to confirm that the work you have submitted is your own, and that you did not have any assistance in completing your NEBOSH assessment.
The closing interview takes place via video call, which you can access via smartphone, tablet or computer.
The interviewer will ask to see your identification. As such, you need to provide either your passport, driving license or national identity card. The interviewer must also see the room that you are in to ensure you don’t have access to notes. They will then ask you questions based on your open book exam, work and submission.
Your closing interview is not an assessment, so you won’t receive a mark. If the interviewer is happy that the work is your own, a mark will be published in line with NEBOSH timeframes.
For more information, visit the NEBOSH guide to Open Book Exams.
External examiners mark all assessments and are appointed by NEBOSH. Each examiner is chosen for their experience and expertise, ensuring candidates are assessed by the best in our industry.
This qualification is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), as well as the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
If you are studying the NEBOSH National General Certificate through classroom learning or in-house learning, the cost of the exam is included.
If, however, you are studying via online or distance learning, you don’t pay for your exam upfront — you pay when you’re ready to book.
Exams must be booked separately from the course — book NEBOSH exams here.
Phoenix Health & Safety are the UK’s premier providers of health and safety training and health and safety consultancy services. Operating from a head office in Staffordshire, we have consultants and training venues all around the UK, ensuring you always have local advice and training courses.
We offer a variety of fully online health and safety courses, including IOSH Working Safely, IOSH Managing Safely, Health and Safety Awareness, Manual Handling, Display Screen Equipment, Fire Safety and many more.
The e-learning courses are interactive and include activities, scenarios and quizzes to engage learners and keep them interested. Every course has a final assessment which is designed to prove that the delegate has reached the required level of knowledge, as well as assisting with the employers’ legal duty to ensure staff have been adequately trained.
Courses can be accessed on computer, tablet or mobile devices. It is not necessary to complete the courses in one session, as the system bookmarks where learners got to so that they can continue later from where they left off.
Once the course has been completed, a confirmation of results can be printed or saved as proof of completion. This can then be kept on record or in personal files as evidence of suitable training.
If required, the courses can be tailored to suit the organisation. This may be as simple as including your logo, or you may wish to go further and include relevant photographs, videos, or even attach your forms/templates to the course. There are no limits to what can be achieved by our team of UK based in-house e-learning developers.
Additionally, we are able to build online e-learning courses uniquely for clients from scratch. You might be looking for a course on another subject, or you may want to covert a current paper based course into a dynamic, interactive online course. Please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements.
The programme is extremely flexible, with course material displayed as online PDFs which can be read online or downloaded for offline study when it's more convenient. Course materials are also provided in audiobook form, so students can listen to it read aloud through the software or download it and listen offline later.
In addition to the reading content, students have a wealth of interactive material including activities and video summaries of all content. We also provide mock assessments which provide you with instant feedback to compare your answers and Tutor marked assessments to prepare you for your final assessments.
Recommended study hours: 108 hours
Our team of expert mentors will be available to offer full learning support throughout the duration of the online course. They can be contacted by phone, email, Skype or via our technical tutor support messaging system.
We also provide a closed, invitation only Facebook Group for our students. With well in excess of a thousand members, this is an invaluable resource for students and the perfect place to share knowledge, learn from others and ask any questions that crop up. Students can post attempts at activities and questions, and discuss with each other as well as tutors. We also keep every delegate updated by sending out a monthly student newsletter.
This modern qualification combines activities, learning and interactive materials to provide you with an interesting and engaging experience. It focuses on key skills that means you can instantly apply the knowledge you gain and add value to your organisation.
